I Nearly Shed a Tear While Playing The Spyro Reignited Trilogy

July 1, 2018

Growing up, I played the Spyro and Crash trilogies annually. It was a family tradition that had long fallen by the wayside in the wake of jobs, university studies and adult responsibilities. When the Crash Bandicoot: N-Sane Trilogy was released, the tradition was revived, and many great hours were spent pouring over the remarkable and […]

Supanova Interview: Gaming God Nolan North talks about his beginning, Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool and clowns

June 13, 2018

I shouldn’t have to say who Nolan North is, but for those few uninitiated, if you have ever played a video game in the last 25 years, there is a very big chance Nolan North voiced something or someone in that game. Nolan has been around the TV, Film and Gaming industry since 1997, first starring in General Hospital and Port Charles on TV and then lending his voice to his very first video game in Activision’s Interstate 82. Move forward over 20 years and now Nolan has become a video game icon and a gaming household name.... Continue Reading

June 6, 2018

It’s been a rough first year for Destiny 2. Despite a strong launch, its first two expansion packs — Curse of Osiris and last month’s Warmind — mostly failed to impress the community. Bungie has some work to do if they want to restore player confidence and, if the trailer for the September expac, Forsaken, […]

Games Review: Destiny 2: Warmind (PS4, 2018): Better, but not by a lot

May 18, 2018

Destiny 2‘s first expansion, Curse of Osiris, wasn’t a complete disaster but it sure as hell wasn’t a good move either. Already losing players to battle royale juggernauts of PUBG and Fortnite, Osiris cost the game a lot of momentum after a strong launch. A good chunk of content and activities were placed behind Osiris’ paywall and […]

Rumour: Spyro the Dragon Trilogy to Receive PS4 Remaster?

February 14, 2018

Last year, I wrote about how classic remasters are effectively ‘killing the business’. Yet when Sony announced its MediEvil remaster, I was forced to eat my own words — the pure excitement overrode any concerns about the dangers of nostalgia.

Games Review: Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris (PS4, 2017): A pile of weird decisions

December 12, 2017

There’s almost no reason for you to play Destiny 2‘s first expansion, Curse of Osiris. I’ve tried to find a nicer way to frame the expansion’s futile attempts at justifying its own existence but there’s no getting around it. In a game as massive as Destiny 2, especially one that is designed to keep players coming back, […]
